Police release surveillance camera footage from a robbery that occurred at the BB&T Bank in Nelson County.

Detectives say a man wearing a floppy hat and a bandanna covering his face walked into the bank located off Route 151 on Wednesday. The suspect waved a gun at the bank teller and walked out with an undisclosed amount of cash.

FBI agents and Virginia State Police have spent the past two days searching for the suspect, who is described as a black man, standing 6’2 tall.

Detectives say they have collected some evidence at the scene, which is being processed in a crime lab.

Law enforcement officials are hopeful those clues will help identify a suspect.

As of early Wednesday afternoon June 26, 2013 – lawmen continue looking for a black male dressed in a white shirt they say held up BB&T in Afton along Route 151. “The suspect did show a weapon and some money was taken,”Sheriff David Brooks tells BRLM.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the case had been turned over to the FBI, as is customary in bank robbery cases.

This is not the first time this branch has been robbed. Back in 2008 was just one of several at the Afton BB&T.

Sheriff Brooks said the Augusta County Sheriff’s Department is also involved in the search for the suspect as he may have headed to that county.
